Learn new training tips to run faster this summer!
To race faster, we must teach our body to clear lactate more efficiently. Simple tempo runs and threshold intervals help your body develop this skill by gradually increasing the level of lactate in your system and allowing your body to slowly adapt to the increased lactic acid levels.
This speed session will start at Run and Become with the opportunity to try on and then train in Saucony shoes. The full range of cushioning and support shoes will be available with particular emphasis on the 2 new styles – Ride 10 and Omni 16.
